Liverpool’s recent game at Anfield was the first since Jürgen Klopp announced his departure at the end of the season. Despite this news, the team’s performance on the pitch remained unchanged. Klopp had warned that the players are professionals and that the ‘last dance’ of the season would serve as a great motivation for the team.
In the game against Norwich, a Championship team, Liverpool secured a 5-2 victory to advance to the round of 16 of the FA Cup. The team, having a successful season, did not ease off the gas pedal. Curtis Jones scored 16 minutes into the game, followed by Darwin Núñez after half an hour. Ben Gibson managed to equalize for Norwich in the 22nd minute. The young players brought into the lineup by Klopp, including McConnell, Conor Bradley, and Quansah, played crucial roles in the goals for Liverpool.
The second half saw Liverpool continue their dominance, with Jota, van Dijk, and Gravenberch scoring goals for the team. Despite Norwich’s efforts to fight back, the Spanish Borja Sainz, formerly of Alavés and Zaragoza, managed to score a goal for Norwich in the last play of the game.
With this victory, Liverpool has advanced to the round of 16 as expected. They are set to face the winner of the Watford-Southampton match, which will be determined after a replay following a 1-1 draw. Liverpool’s performance in this game demonstrates their determination and focus as they continue to compete in the FA Cup.
